I recently had purchased my first full size truck; a 1998 F150. This truck is a solid work machine and at the same time has good style and class. I really enjoy getting the positive attention that one receives while driving. As for performance, the truck was equipped with the tow package and is geared at a low ratio. Lots of power and as for gas millage about 16-18mpg high way. Which is relatively close to a mid size truck, but with more room and allot more truck. I would recommend this truck to anyone who actually needs a truck for working purposes, towing and hauling, ect.

Very durable and trouble free

by from Ticonderoga, NY on July 5, 2009

I have 290,000 miles on mine and no problems. The four wheel drive engages inside the cab and offers 4-high and 4-low. The 4-low four wheel drive is very powerful.

I have a 1998 Ford F-150 with the six cylinder engine and the standard transmission. I don't have to pull stumps out of the ground but I do have to carry 1200 to 1500 pounds of music equipment every weekend, sometimes over roads that are not all that well paved. I have never had a breakdown on the road, and only routine maintainance such as battery, serpentine belt and tensioner, brake pads, clutch and throwout bearing, oil and filter, air filter. My F-150 has been good to me and has never left me stuck at the side of the road. It now has 156,000 miles on it and is still running strong.

Bought my '98 f-150 more than 15 years ago. I don't drive it a lot, but when I have, it hasn't let me down. I have 83,000 miles on it and the only things that have quit on it have been the cd player and a/c compressor and just last year, the original battery finally quit after 16 years and that's the truth! For having a truck for over 15 years and those being the only things that have gone wrong, I can't complain one bit. I have kept up with all maintenance and it's been a great truck and I plan to keep it as long as it keeps running and looking good.
